Just having fun Dennis. Although I tend to take the glass is half full approach to this. I find it amazing that so much of this great music was captured and available for us to still listen to 30-40 years later. Yes some gems slipped through but I suspect there are more high quality recordings both in actual numbers and percentage of shows played than any other musical group to have graced this planet. Let's be thankful for that.

I know youre teasing Larry and of course I agree with you.

Its somewhat ironic, though that some rather amazing performances of Viola's are only available as commercial releases or challenging AUDS...
